No budget, no pay

No budget, no pay

Every business, every home has a budget. Even if we don't write it down, we all know we have to balance our spending and income and make decisions about what we can afford.

Making a budget for our country is one of Congress' most important jobs. But it hasn't passed a full budget or required spending bills on time since 1995.

One answer: The "No Budget, No Pay" bill proposed by No Labels (it's one of 12 common sense ideas for making Congress work). Under this proposal if Congress doesn't pass a budget on time, lawmakers don't get their paychecks.

If your member of Congress has signed on to "No Budget, No Pay," thank them and congratulate them. If they haven't, now is the time to let them know.

So far 77 congressmen have signed on. Has yours? Find out at this link:

Paul Missall,

    For all the gridlock in Congress we see on TV and elsewhere, many Americans might be surprised to know there is a group of about 90 members of Congress making efforts to find bipartisan solutions to the real problems facing the country. They deserve more recognition and support. They offer a sensible, credible and viable way to break Washington gridlock and provide solutions to America’s problems in the bipartisan way that the vast majority of Americans say they want. Most importantly, they agree to work together and compromise.

    "The response from members — who themselves have tired of the constant gridlock — has been astounding. Membership in the group has more than tripled since January. Even as news headlines have fixated on the continued dysfunction on Washington these last few months, members of the Problem Solvers coalition have been quietly meeting to rebuild trust with colleagues across the aisle and to begin developing solutions. Make Government Work! is their first effort, with the promise of many more to come."
